Nervous About Dental Care? Plymouth Sedation Dentistry
Are you nervous about going to the dentist? You aren’t alone. We see patients every day who have struggled with fear of the dentist. No matter what the cause or reason, we are here to cater to anyone who is frightened, nervous or even just a little bit anxious. Of course we surround you with our care and always treat you with a gentle touch, but we also offer dentistry’s newest comfort technique – sedation dentistry.
How Does Sedation Dentistry Work?
For sedation dentistry, we will prescribe a relaxing little pill that you take prior to arrival at your appointment. Sedation dentistry works so well, not only because it reduces anxiety and pain, but also because it helps your muscles relax and dental anesthetics work better on a relaxed body.
Because this medication causes drowsiness, we request that you have someone drive you to and from your appointment.
Is Sedation Dentistry Just for Those with Dental Anxiety?
While sedation dentistry is life changing for those with dental anxieties or fears, it is also great for anyone who needs to have more than one or two dental procedures completed. Just imagine the time and effort saved when you can have all your dental work done in one day! You’ll essentially sleep through all the work and wake up feeling as if you have had a nice, long nap.
Sedation dentistry is also ideal for those who have trouble sitting still for long periods, have a strong gag reflex, have trouble getting numb or find it difficult to keep their mouths open. For more information or to find out if sedation dentistry is for you, give us a call today!
